Violet Ponderosa from Hooping Idol 4, otherwise known as Sara Violette Harrison, spins up some summer with her hoops at the beach. Yay! She says, “I had so much fun being able to hoop on the beach this summer. Although hooping in the sand was a challenge.” It really is if you haven’t tried it, and she still looks brilliant. Filmed in Cape May, New Jersey, she lives in Washington, DC, USA, and the soundtrack for this is called “The Sound of Sunshine” by Michael Franti & Spearhead, a hooping favorite of many, and you can get a copy of it for your very own over on iTunes.
